Wonderful Quote

I remember reading this quote a long time ago.... so touching and empowering.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.' We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." (A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles", Harper Collins, 1992. From Chapter 7, Section 3])

Have you guys been keeping up with American Idol?

I haven't been watching it since I've been busy with school, but for my husband, AI is a must see show. I sometimes "watch" it with him on DVR. And by watching, I meant working on a school paper on my laptop next to him, in front of the TV. But last night, something broke my concentration: Haley Reinhart. Wow, that voice... and that song! Uuuu.. and that dress! Ok, now I'm hooked :)

Speaking of that dress, did you see how beautiful she looked? Oh and the dress... the dress! It's vintage and retro and looks really cool on her. I read that you can get it from

Haley is my fave in the show because she looks kinda like the character Angela from TV Series Bones.... but her performance last week was really great. Yep.... I guess I'll be watching the show more closely now. Go Haley!!! You got my vote :)

Busy busy busy

Have you ever felt like the more time you have, the less time you have for anything? It's like when you go on an extended vacation, you have all the things that you did not do while you were on your time off, and suddenly you realize that there are so many things to do?

I don't know if that makes sense. Maybe it's the result of procrastinating.

Anyway, I do feel overwhelmed lately with school, work, family, friends, and household chores. Especially with the tax season coming to a close! However, I found that as long as you make a list of things and just tackle it one by one, you'll be ok.
